Chiefs likely to give Reid raise, contract extension

Since winning his first Super Bowl four years ago, Andy Reid has had to field questions about his eventual retirement. He's batted away those questions this week in Las Vegas ahead of Super Bowl LVIII.

But what if, instead of a retirement after the game, the longtime head coach gets an extension?

Sources tell Jonathan Jones of CBS Sports an extension is more likely than retirement heading into Reid's fifth Super Bowl appearance. Reid, one of the winningest coaches of all time, is in line to get a raise almost no matter the outcome of Sunday night's game. He signed a six-year extension after his first Super Bowl victory four years ago, and he has two years left on his current deal.

Multiple sources have noted how underpaid Reid is. He makes close to $12 million per year, which ranks him around 10th in the league among all head coaches. A win Sunday would give him his third Lombardi when the other 31 active head coaches have a combined six.

And with the recent additions of Sean Payton and Jim Harbaugh to the AFC West, Reid is now the third-highest-paid coach in his own division, more than $5 million per year less than those two.

"He's not retiring," one source said. "He's not paid what he should be getting paid. Problem with the whole organization. Pay has not been what it should be all the way top to bottom."
